Review

'A masterpiece of historical investigation into one of the world's greatest crimes' (New Statesman)

'It is hard to exaggerate the achievement of this book in proving that Mao caused the famine ... only thanks to brilliant scholarship such as this will the heirs of the vanished millions finally learn what happened to their ancestors' (Sunday Times)

'The most authoritative and comprehensive study of the biggest and most lethal famine in history. A must-read' (Jung Chang)

'Gripping ... Prof Dikötter's painstaking analysis of the archives shows Mao's regime resulted in the greatest "man-made famine" the world has ever seen' (Daily Express)

Book Description

An unprecedented, groundbreaking history of China's Great Famine

Winner of the BBC Samuel Johnson Prize 2011
